Redeeming your product key is a one-time process that adds your new product to your Microsoft account. When you're done, you'll use your Microsoft account, not your product key, to install and activate your Office apps.
Note: If you have an existing Microsoft 365 subscription, you can redeem a new product key to extend your subscription.
To get started, remove your product key from your package, or gently scratch the silver foil on the back of your product key card. If you bought your product from the Microsoft Store, your product key is on your receipt.
